Weekend Retreats in Holycombe, Warwicksire

 

These weekend Yoga Retreats for up to 12 people run from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon and are held at a beautiful and very peaceful place called Holycombe, only 1 hour & 15 minutes drive from Leonard Stanley. You can check it out here https://www.holycombe.com/retreatcentre

 

The 2018 Retreat will be held on October 19th - 21st and will cost £280 for single occupancy/£240 for shared room.

 

The weekend includes:

. 5 Yoga sessions

Yoga dance

2 Meditation sessions

All breakfasts, teas, coffees, homemade cakes & lunches.

Large communal eating area to sit and chat.

Countryside walks right on the doorstep.

On Friday evening we all bring an item of food for a 'shared supper'

On Saturday evening we eat out ( at your expense) at the local pub 'The Norman Knight'

( or if you prefer, you can stay at Holycombe and self-cater that evening)

Holycombe itself is set within 6 acres so lots of space to wander off and private places to relax.If you want to venture further afield the location is Whichford, a beautiful village located in the idyllic rolling hills of south Warwickshire in the North Cotswolds. The village was mentioned in the Domesday Book and it features several attractive older buildings around the very large green. There are also a couple of 2-3 mile circular walks in the area for those who love to walk off their lunch/cakes!

Whichford Pottery is also within walking distance, has a highly recommended cafe & would be a great place to get ahead with your Christmas shopping!

 

 

Reviews and comments on 2017 Autumn Retreat

 

Arriving at Hollycombe at Whichford in the dark, I had no idea, of the wonderful views of the garden and beyond, including montjac, squirrels and numerous song birds that awaited us the next morning! A delight to enjoy over breakfast in the lovely wooden conservatory. The eleven of us had shared an enjoyable meal upon arrival, the previous evening, before our first yoga session in the "Angel Room" with wonderful wooden flooring and underfloor heating. Saturday was full on yoga, walking, visiting the local church, and Pottery or resting, and culminating in an excellent meal in the local Pub, which was great fun. In spite of the cold we walked the 10 minutes there and back. Sunday, two yoga sessions, and delicious lunch which Carol provided for us each day, with her special soups. We agreed that her culinary expertise was on a par with the cooking at our previous retreat. After our last yoga at three pm. We said our goodbyes, after a wonderfully packed and enjoyable week end .

This was my first yoga retreat and I wasn't sure what to expect and whether or not it would be too intense for me. I needn't have worried. Carol ran a very relaxed but well paced weekend with plenty to do. There was a really good balance of yoga and other activities and Holycombe was a lovely peaceful setting. As well as the 5 regular yoga sessions there were shorter sessions for meditation, breathing and dance. The yoga dance was a revelation as I found the sequence of flowing movements performed together in a group was unexpectedly satisfying and uplifting. Outside the yoga-based sessions we met together for meals and had free time to walk, explore the grounds or just chill out so again there was a balance of sociability and private time and individuals were able to opt in and out as they wished. I always enjoy Carol's yoga classes which are varied and well thought out with just the right amount of challenge. Carol herself is very friendly and approachable and creates a calm and peaceful atmosphere. The weekend was a chance for me to focus on my yoga and I came away feeling in tune with my body, relaxed and yet re-energised. I will definitely return for another retreat. Gill D.

 

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend, really enjoyed it and the underfloor heating was an added bonus for me! A.R

 

The yoga space at Holycombe was particularly magical. As always, Carol was sensitive to the needs of individuals and the group. My aching, stiff back was pain free and moving easily after the first session, fab! Thank you for a fab weekend Carol, sprinkled with Maguire magic as always E.W xx
